- Medication Management
About My Clients
I am proficient in treating adults with Depression, Bipolar Disorders, PTSD, Schizophrenia, Co-Morbid Substance Abuse, OCD, and Anxiety Disorders. However, my expertise is in managing complex cases that involve co-morbid disorders such as complex medical problems, developmental disorders, intellectual disorders, brain injury and substance use disorders. I also specialize in managing individuals with forensic involvement and those experiencing their first psychotic break.
My Background and Approach
I received both my nursing degree and advanced practice degree from University of Maryland, School of Nursing. I have experience caring for individuals with mental health disorders in multiple settings including hospital in-patient units (University of Maryland Medical Center), home-based care (delegating nursing and ACT team), outpatient mental health (Sheppard Pratt) clinics and intense community health programs (Baltimore City ACT team and Chesapeake Connections capitation program). I provide integrative and comprehensive mental health care utilizing innovative medication delivery systems, groundbreaking new medications and novel individualized interventions. If you are not interested in medication management, I am also proficient in completing thorough psychiatric evaluations that may be required by third parties.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am a strong believer in education and making informed decisions about care. I encourage the participation of the patient and place a strong emphasis on combining quality medication management, therapy and somatic health for best outcomes.
